  • "The property was perfect for our needs and was laid out to a very high quality."

    Reviewed by KenMay 2022

  • "The overall property was good."

    Information on the heating systems would have been valuable as to how to better control temperatures in the rooms. This led to larger than desirable swings. Location was great but not on the quay as implied. Only 2 blocks and 2 minutes away, but not quite like the description would have you believe. In addition, the parking information wasn't clear or detailed enough and should have been provided after booking. The road by the cottage was difficult to maneuver through and it wasn't clear about being able to park on the street nearby or lots. Parking shouldn't be in question for a property - expectations and needs should be clearly laid out. Otherwise, the cottage was very nice. The amenities were good and Conwy was a wonderful town to stay in. The bed was comfortable and overall the property worked very well for what we were using it for.

    Thank you for your feedback and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your time in Conwy. The information for the heating systems and parking is all in the information pack that is supplied at the property. Additionally, there are two large council car parks very near the property. It's lovely to hear that the location was great, which is stated to be near the quay but not next to. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Superb little cottage in the heart of the walls in Conwy."

    Beautiful decorated and equipped. We parked up just outside on arrival and didn’t get back into the car until we left. Plenty of lovely walks, including the must do Conwy mountain circular walk with its breath taking views. Numerous dog friendly pubs, cafes & restaurants. I would highly recommend a visit Jean 10/10

  • "Loved my short stay at this cottage."

    It's in a brilliant location just seconds from the main shopping street, but very quiet and away from the tourists. easy to explore the town on foot or to browse the shops and buy goodies. And a great location for exploring the North West wales corner. we went as far as Portmeirion and Anglesey as well as into Snowdonia National Park. Superbly appointed. Immaculate in it's presentation. Spotlessly clean. Great big comfy bed with excellent bedding.(Slept really well all three nights). Towels were provided (although the listing says they are not), so that needs updating. Kitchen had everything you need, heating worked a treat and it has a really nice gas effect log burner so we were super cosy. The bathroom has a huge walk in shower with lots of hot water and a heated floor. Loved it. I'd definitely come back and stay again in the warmer months to take advantage of the small garden/patio area. I'd contacted the owner a couple of days before to clarify parking. We were staying off season so we were able to park in the lane outside. If you are in season then get online and sort out a long stay pass with the local council allowing at least three weeks to do it. This will ensure you get good value parking without any hassle.

  • "The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard."

    It had everything we could possibly wish for and is in a great location for exploring North Wales. We appreciated the owner contacting us twice within our weeks stay to make sure we were settled in and had everything we needed. After a long day out exploring it was nice to come back to such a beautiful cottage, close to the town and all the amenities and look forward to returning again. We will definitely recommend to all our family and friends.

  • "A beautiful cottage situated in the heart of Conwy, home from home."

    The cottage had everything all you had to do was unpack. The property was clean throughout and to say pets are allowed in the property you wouldn’t know they’d been in no smells no hair nothing. Would highly recommend a visit, the only thing we would say would make sure you check local attractions as we found most had to be pre booked on line (COVID Changes) and most places only took card payments and not cash. Other than that we had a fabulous stay.

  • "Beautifully refurbished and modernised cottage in a brilliant location right in the middle of Conwy."

    50 metres from the main street and a 10 minute slow stroll to the sea front. Top class facilities and a lovely secluded "suntrap" of a back garden area.

  • "Conwy is a lovely town and a great place for a holiday with lots of engaging pubs and splendid restaurants and friendly cafes."

    But as we are doddery, we felt unable to visit any of them in these covid-19 times and, consequently, spent more time (every evening really) in the cottage than we had anticipated when we first booked. As is shown on the website, the cottage is small and perhaps the small sofa and stool are not best designed for a comfortable night in let alone 7 consecutive ones. The breakfast bar/dining table has two (probably normal sized) stools that were not that easy for us to sit on but it was clear that the owners have taken enormous pride in designing and fitting out the house to the highest standard with everything a guest could reasonably hope to find. The house is really well located. I used the Guest Parking Pass to leave my car at the nearby public car park and that worked very well. I'm sure that, at another time, my review of the house would have been kinder.

  • "The accommodation was great and we appreciated the call for an early check in if we required it."

    The key lock for entry was straight forward and meant that we could be independent and flexible with arrival timings. We really appreciated the bubbly in the fridge - as we were celebrating our anniversary . It was great to get a call at the start too to check that we were happy with everything and whether there was anything required. The garden was very private and a welcome escape from the bustle of the town - which was busy . Parking was hit and miss outside but car parks only a short walk away - so not a problem. Facilities in the house were excellent with the tv/radio set up. Shower and bathroom set up was superb and made us think of renovating ours at home . Kitchen was also very well set up with washing machine and dishwasher etc. Pub garden was nearby but nice to hear people enjoying themselves again . We were very fortunate to find such a gem of a place to stay that was close to all amenities but equally very private . Our dog also enjoyed the daily park/marina walk nearby before venturing further a field . Good luck with the bookings in this difficult time and thank you again for enabling us to enjoy a perfect week.

  • "We have just returned from a week staying in Plas Mawr Cottage."

    The property has been renovated to the highest standard and lacks for nothing. There are even televisions upstairs and downstairs, it really is home from home. The position is fantastic just 50 steps to Conwy High Street and a stroll down to the Quayside. The outside area is spacious and traps the sun nearly all day. This is the 3rd cottage we have stayed in in Conwy and is by far the best one. We went with our little dog and there are plenty of walks close by and Llandudno is only 4 miles away with the Little Orme and the Great Orme. We would definitely stay in this lovely little cottage again

    The cottage was beautiful clean, and comfortable very high Standard. We were very disappointed to find workmen working on the cottage next door , having to put up with the Work Van parked outside our front door and window. They were using electric saw , drilling banging , we couldn’t believe it and we shouldn’t have to put up with that on a holiday or at least be told about it . !!!!

    We had a lovely break in the cottage It was beautiful comfortable clean and decorated to a very high standard I did feel at night that blinds on the back door and windows of the kitchen would have been nice to complete the privacy in the cottage ( even so there was a private garden outside ) It was nice that the owners allowed a dog to stay as well lovely stay - pity that the Tudor house next door was not open for visits but that is nothing to do with the cottage experience which was lovely

  • "Fantastic little cottage, in a good central location."

    Lots of little shops and pubs and right on the water front which was lovely. Perfect size for a couple, and the bed is one of the comfiest we have slept in! Everything was very clean, and to a good standard. Tricky to park, especially if you have a big car, however the owners gave us a permit for local council car parks. Great location if you fancy a trip to Snowdonia National Park, or a drive to other pretty areas - Portmerion is well worth a visit, and just an hours drive! Would recommend, and would also go back!

  • "We had a lovely time in Conwy and the owners have decorated the cottage to the highest standard."

    There are lovely pubs, bars and restaurants in walking distance and our dog loved the beach. The only negative was the parking situation which is fairly difficult with the on street parking being on a first come first served basis. Bear in mind the street is very narrow and larger cars might struggle to get through. However the owner provided a parking pass valid for several public car parks which was very helpful. Also the cottage is backing on to a pub garden so the noise level on weekends / evenings was a bit louder but didn’t bother us too much. All in all a great stay with easy access to lots of beautiful walks at the coast and Snowdonia National Park.

About the location


Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
